Lorusso's - Tenderloin Mudega (Steak Modiga)

“My husband and I often go to "the hill" in St. Louis. It is an Italian neighborhood featuring some of the best restaurants and little Italian grocers. For our anniversary we went to LoRusso's Cucina and my DH order Tenderloin Mudega. He LOVED his meal and said it was the best thing he'd ever eaten. To my surprise they posted their recipe online. The cheese used at the restaurant is "provel" but I think that is only found in St. Louis. You can substitute any white, mild cheese you'd like. Here it is for all of us to make at home. I can't wait to surprise him with this one!!!”
